As cliche as it may sound, I have always considered a new year to be a new beginning. It’s an opportunity to start with a fresh slate and to map out your goals and aspirations for the coming year. It’s also a time to reflect and think about all of the highs and even lows that you have experienced. At the end of it all though, it is a celebration; a celebration of life, love, health, family and friendship. I cannot tell you how blessed I am to step into this new year. Sometimes I am just in awe of God’s mercy towards me and the favor that he has bestowed over my life and the lives of others. Doors have been opened, opportunities have come my way, healing of sickness has taken place. God has just been amazing!
The message that I am holding on to in 2014 is “Fear not.” To be completely honest, I was very scared to start this blog. I was afraid of the reception that I would get from others, I was nervous about not being liked and overall I was just concerned about protecting myself from my own insecurities. Fear is something, isn’t it? But one thing I have to constantly remind myself of is the fact that I am uniquely made and that my gifts and talents are like none other. Nothing about me is a mistake and the ideas that God has planted into my head are no accident.
So my hope for you is that in this new year, you fear no person, no obstacle, no mountain. Nothing can stand in the way of what God has for you. Be prosperous, be successful, be outspoken, be fabulous, be trendy, be curvy!
Blessings to you all!
